Marionette of Me

Lyrics

Held up on my last strings
Of this marionette of me
That you control in your spare time
Pick me up, I’m a pantomime
But cut the act
And all the strings
And the stupid smile
You’ll see inside I’m slowly breaking
My heart is aching

This marionette of me
Just ain’t cut out
To be what I would like to be

Skulls and heart and crossbones
Pick me up when I am alone
The only friends that I dare see
In fears of what you’d do to me
But let me fall
Onto the dusty floor
And let me cry and talk
What I have held inside for so long

Chorus
I’m cutting all my strings
You can try to hold on
But I’m already gone

Held up, by your
Dwindling nervous hands
x2

Chorus
I’m, cutting all my strings
You can try to hold on
But I’m already gone

Of this marionette of me
This ain’t me
No
